With another couple we have just spent a long weekend at Salisbury Lodges. Second visit for us. A magnificent spot with lovely peaceful surroundings. Room was great. Outdoor fire and cooking facilities provided. A lovely cooked breakfast provided in the restaurant. Joe and Phillipa incredibly obliging helpful and friendly hosts. Could not ask for any more. Great walks from the...

My Dad and I booked this accommodation due to the good reviews and proximity to the Barrington Tops walking trails and wasn't disappointed. We arrived to meet Philipa who was very welcoming. We went up to our accommodation and found it a lot bigger than we expected and well set out. We met Joe the jovial Austrian soon after arrival...

The place is really remote, away from any kind of hassle or worry. My wife and I loved our stay here in a spa room, not a big room but we truly enjoyed the spa bath after our walk along the river. The owners are so friendly and helpful. The home cooked style dinner in the restaurant was absolutely delicious...

After a horrendous start to the weekend, my mother and I were looking for a nice getaway near the Upper Allyn where we frequented for the last 20 years. Joe & Phillipa kindly opened their property for us and were so accommodating. The lodges were neat and tidy with the facilities being exceptional. The fire place was great and we...

The location of this property is magical. It is on the fringe of the wilderness of the Barrington Tops region and is a very relaxing getaway. You need to be aware that it is very remote, about 35 kms from Dungog, so if you are self-catering, make sure you don't forget anything you think you will need. We were offered...

Pros,beautiful location. Cons, Rude reception over the phone when we rang from Dungog,told we couldn't check in because she wasn't ready and was told to go to the national park even though we had requested an 11am check in when we booked. No confirmation email to say we were booked in,no return phone call when we rang the night before...

We stayed at Salisbury Lodge for one night in a spa room and were not disappointed. Our room was clean and comfortable and the owners were lovely and very knowledgeable. The verandah looked out onto the national park and we saw plenty of birdlife just by sitting outside at sunset. There are gorgeous bushwalks right outside the gate and a...

Salisbury Lodge is owned and operated by a semi retired couple Phillipa and Joe. Joe built the place in the 70s and most of the furniture. It backs right onto the Barrington Tops National Park. You literally walk through the back gate and you're in the National Park. Phillipa is a chef and cooks superb simple food. The rooms are...

Were were 4 couples away for an annual get together. We like clean and comfortable, good food, space to sit and yarn and opportunity for some sightseeing and exercise. We were not disappointed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Salisbury Lodges a mountain wilderness Retreat. Located on the Southern slopes of the Barrington's, with its unique boundaries to the William River and the Closest Accommodation to World Heritage listed rain forest. Salisbury Lodges and Araluen Licensed Restaurant - "A Wilderness Retreat with a difference." Few people in this world get the chance to live in natures wilderness. But for the few who take time out to explore or even just to absorb the breathtaking rain forest, fresh mountain air feel very privileged and refreshed to have done so. The pure indulgence of doing exactly what you want to do when you want to do it. Whether it be a walk through the natural rain forest, taking in the magnificent views of the mountains or swimming in the streams or rivers, observing the wildlife, trekking, horse riding or doing absolutely nothing in the peace and quiet of the blue gums or simply relax, feed a Rosella on your own balcony and be at peace with the surrounds. Our Restaurant no longers is open - except where bookings are made in advance ... more   less
